There are a number of automotive legends – of them already covered by the of history. Not so the Mercedes-Benz Unimog. during the hard times after the end of World War II, the indestructible has long since become one of the legends in automotive engineering. The holds its ground in the face of under the most arduous changing economic settings and customer groups. Small the Unimog copes with difficult ground, pulls goods trains, can be used as a and features attachment points for a variety of implements.

Hard-working jack-of-all-trades right the start

The Unimog has proved as a hard-working jack-of-all-trades anywhere in the for many decades. What has is its basic design concept: versatility for assignments of virtually all superior off-road mobility to its all-wheel drive, portal axles and differential locks and rear, a compact cab, robustness and the possibility of attaching a of working implements.

The new Unimog U 300, U 400 und U 500 available 2000 are also tailored to work. The vehicles combine looks with a practical as as attractively designed cab made of composite materials, a driver’s called VarioPilot that can be from left to right and again within seconds, a new high-performance hydraulic system and with output ratings up to 205 kW hp) – the new Unimog for the new millennium can do even than any of its predecessors and meets the diverse demands of a heterogeneous
